Replyz – one of my favorite Question and Answer site has announced it is shutting down on July 31st, 2014. Replyz is a question and answer site that enables users to ask or answer questions posted on Twitter. Replyz provides a platform that allows anyone to participate in question-answering on Twitter in a conversation-like manner.
Often people ask questions on Twitter, Replyz mines Twitter for tweets that seem question-related and present them in a live stream that allows people to answer your questions even if they are not following you on Twitter.
Replyz watches for any replies to a question and assembles them into a “conversation” even if they weren’t made using Replyz itself.
Replyz is different from other question and answer sites like Yahoo Answers and others because it does not rely on contributions from anyone; it relies on contributed answers from your trusted friends or people you know in some way.
Replyz makes it easy to ask questions on Twitter and get answers in real-time. I have been using Replyz for a very long time now and I have asked questions and contributed meaningful answers to questions asked by others.
But recently Replyz has announced they will be shutting down on July 31, 2014. See a screenshot of the mail they sent to their users recently.
A lot of Replyz users will surely be looking for worthy Replyz alternatives. So I have spent some time looking for some Replyz alternatives and just found out there may not really be much out there. So I am going to share some Replyz alternatives in this article and hope we can find more soon and add to the list.
1. InboxQ: InboxQ seems like the most likely Replyz alternative out there. InboxQ is similar to Replyz, it delivers a real-time stream of questions related to business, products, industry or general interests from Twitter.
InboxQ also has browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox. InboxQ realizes that there are lots of questions being asked by people on Twitter but weren’t receiving very useful answers, and businesses were having hard time finding ways to engage with Twitter users.
InboxQ has solved these problems by providing a platform that will allow people to answer questions and at the same time alert businesses to compelling engagement opportunities where they can use their expertise to help solve a problem and potentially win new customers.
2. twitQA: twitQA is yet another Replyz alternative that enables users to discover and answer the questions asked on Twitter. You can also ask your own questions using this platform for others to answer.
So if you are a Replyz user out there looking for Replyz alternatives, you may have to try any of these two shared here for now.
If you know any worthy Replyz alternatives out there, please use the comments below to share with me so I can add to the list. I know a lot of people like me out there will be looking for Replyz alternatives, so we can keep helping people with answers to the questions they ask on Twitter.
